Donnie Wahlberg on ‘Blue Bloods’

Wahlberg has a natural chemistry with Bridget Moynahan on Blue Bloods, and the audience has always been able to see it. However, what are the duo like off-set? Is the friendship still there? Does it still flow as it needs to?

Wahlberg told CBS, “We have a great friendship. We did a pilot together in 2008 that I executive-produced called Bunker Hill. When the Blue Bloods offer came along, I immediately called her, and I said, “You have to play the sister.”

So, it was Wahlberg who encouraged Moynahan to take the role on Blue Bloods. How cool is that, Outsiders?

He continued, “She said, “I already passed.” She was worried it was going to shoot in Canada, and she had a young child and didn’t want to have to commute. I said, “I guarantee you, we won’t go to Canada … because Tom Selleck is never going to do a show in Canada. Knowing him, he will fight to do it in New York, because he wants it to be authentic.”

If the show happens in Canada, we don’t see Bridget it looks like from Wahlberg’s comments. Both he and Selleck were not in that idea.

Wahlberg concluded about their friendship, “She and I started out as friends coming out of tough relationships, as single parents, and became friends and confidants and watched each other go through other relationships and then ultimately find spouses. Bridget and I have gone through this parallel journey as friends and have been there for each other.”

The two have always had a lot in common. They understand where the other is coming from and as he points out they have lived very similar lives, so the chemistry on-screen is also true off-screen because of the nature of their lives to this point. This is really cool to learn and very interesting to see how much Wahlberg and Bridget have in common.
